He attended Bombay University, and played in the Vizzy Trophy and the Rohinton Baria Trophy between 1983 and 1985, winning both in 1985, with West Zone Universities and Bombay University respectively.
Manjrekar made his first-class cricket debut on 7 March 1985, scoring 57 runs in his only innings for Bombay during their Ranji Trophy quarter-final victory over Haryana.He retained his place for the semi-final, but did not play again after that until the following season.

The following season, he struck his first century in first-class cricket, remaining 100 not out during the first innings of a match against Baroda. He scored one other hundred that season, and his season's average was 76.40. He struck a double century for West Zone in October 1987, scoring 278 runs from 376 before being run out.
Domestically, he enjoyed success in the 1990–91 season, scoring four centuries and one half-century in eight first-class appearances. During the season, he scored his highest total, 377,in the Ranji Trophy semi-final against Hyderabad. He played in the final of the 1994–95 Ranji Trophy, scoring 224 runs to help Bombay to a total of 690/6 declared in their first innings, a total that saw them win the trophy.
He won a second Ranji Trophy final in 1996–97, captaining his team, by this stage renamed Mumbai.

In the third Test of the same series, Manjrekar made his highest score in Test cricket, reaching 218 runs in the first innings, before being run out. He did not score another international century for two years, when he hit 105 runs from 82 balls in an ODI against South Africa.
